The purpose of this seminar is to build capacity in numeracy at school level. The main focus is the promotion and development of Number. However, this instructional approach to teaching Maths can be used across all strands and strand units.Day Two of this seminar examines the strand units of Place Value, Decimals and Percentages in detail and explores a wide range of instructional practices and concrete learning experiences. This is day two of a two-day seminar.
Place Value, Decimals and Percentages: Teacher's Manual - A Guide to Teaching Place Value, Decimals and Percentages in Irish Primary Schools
The aim of this resource is to assist teachers in teaching place value, decimals and percentages (1st to 6th class). This strand unit is not applicable for infant classes. The resource is intended to complement and support the implementation of the Primary School Mathematics Curriculum (PSMC) rather than replace it. By providing additional guidance in the teaching and learning of these areas, this resource attempts to illuminate a pedagogical framework for enhancing mathematical thinking, that is, methods of eliciting, supporting and extending higher-order mathematics skills such as reasoning; communicating and expressing; integrating and connecting; and applying and problem solving.
Please note: It would be helpful for participants to download and print off the Place Value, Decimals and Percentages: Teacher's Manual prior to the seminar as this manual will be used extensively on the day.
